Beat the drum!
from 8 months to 3 years
In an original set sporting lots of drumheads, we invite young children and their parents to join a percussionist, a saxophonist and a puppeteer for a unique experience. Musical improvisation and shadow play are used to create an authentic story.
BEAT THE DRUM! is a music theatre production with percussion and amazing shadow theatre. This show grew out of CABAN, Theater De Spiegel’s creative play and activity area.
Marbles, balls, bowls, drumheads, drums and water… A magical journey in an extraordinary setting. A shadow artist, a flautist cum saxophonist and a percussionist take very young children and their parents or grandparents with them on a journey filled with sounds, music and rhythm. Young and old, big and small enjoy a visual concert. Rock ‘n’ roll and poetry.
